...Our Opponents Won't Make the Same Pledge!
I am truly the only candidate who won’t raise your taxes. Recently, I asked Mr. Callahan a second time if he will take a pledge with me to not raise taxes in his first term as county executive and he refused.
I am the only candidate in this race who has not voted for a tax increase.
By comparison, Mr. Reibman increased your taxes 64% as County Executive, John Callahan has increased taxes 43% during his time on Bethlehem City Council and as Mayor.
They won't take the pledge because their fall back positions have always been to raise taxes.
My plan calls for the hiring of a Community and Economic Development Director, protecting and maintaining Gracedale as a county run home and protecting open space and environmentally sensitive lands while not raising your taxes.
That’s leadership you can believe in that will move Northampton County Forward. I appreciate your support and don’t forget to vote May 21st, 2013.
